Grilled Tajin & Maple Chicken Wings 


Chicken Wings = Handheld Happiness 

These chicken wings are entirely next-level thanks to double-hit of Tajin and a sweet & chili-flavour-packed maple glaze. Tajin is legit one of my all-time favorite spice mixtures – a rockstar blend of chile, lime, and sea salt. It’s perfect on everything from fresh fruit, to cocktails, to chicken, fish, or steak. The Everything Delicious Spice. For real. 

Next time you make chicken wings, fire the grill and grab a bottle of Tajin. So delicious. You’ll absolutely love it! 


Grilled Tajin & Maple Chicken Wings 

For the Chicken Wings 

2 pounds chicken wings 

1 tablespoon olive oil 

2 teaspoons Tajin 

Glaze & Garnish 

¼ cup pure maple syrup 

3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice 

1 teaspoon Tajin 

To Serve 

¼ cup minced cilantro leaves, to garnish 

Extra lime wedges, to serve 

1. When ready to cook, preheat a grill to medium-high heat. 

2. Chicken wing time. In a large bowl, combine wings, olive oil, Tajin, and toss until the chicken is completely coated in the spice mixture. (Note! This step can be done up to 4 hours before grilling – the longer the wings marinate in the Tajin mixture, the better.) 

3. Transfer the wings to the grill, placing directly on the grill grates in a single layer. Cook for 15 – 20 minutes, turning halfway through, until golden on the outside and cooked through on the inside (and the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F). 

4. Meanwhile, combine maple, lime, and Tajin in a large bowl and mix well. When the chicken wings are done, immediately transfer them to the maple glaze bowl and toss well to coat entirely in glaze. 

5. Transfer your incredible Tajin-kissed chicken wings to a serving platter and sprinkle over the cilantro. Serve immediately with extra lime wedges. Delicious!!
